Loads of roast beef on a WNY favorite beef on weck. Not much of a menu, chili and beef, but you will love the patio and the beef... and a frosty mug of beer on a hot summer day!

An average restaurant, Very limited menu. Locally known for its roast beef sandwiches. Very dimly lit. Adequate on-site parking.

Casual service. order at the bar. Fantastic Beef on Weck and chili.. Sat outside on the patio beside the river and watched the boats go by. Can also eat in at the bar, or dining room.. Outside patio is, of course, seasonal

We happened in to Swistons with high hopes and an appetite. A friendly bartender told us to dear ourselves in the dining area, which overlooked a marina. Our server came over after a few minutes and asked if we were ready to order. I said we would like a menu first, and she pointed at a table tent with 5... More

Been going here for many years, first as a resident of the area and, now, as an occasional visitor from out of state. If you are looking for the quintessential local bar that serves iconic beef on weck along with a wide assortment of brews, this is the place! Virtually nothing has changed with time (except for prices) which means... More
